Lifelong Ohio State fan. I grew up in southern Ohio and have lived all over the state including Chillicothe and Cleveland. I now live in Florida but O-H-I-O is home. I was raised on my grandfather's Scioto County farm where I learned two important life lessons: 1, Always treat people how you'd like to be treated; 2, Three yards and a cloud of dust! One of my earliest childhood memories is wearing my scarlet and gray footie pajamas when I was 5 while watching OSU game replays on the local WOSU channel with my dad. I even remember Paul Warfield announcing. I've been known to scream at the TV when Ohio State plays. I hate TTUN. I hate them more than Khan hated Captain Kirk. That Team Up North sucks. The SEC sucks. Mark May sucks. Go Bucks!


  • SPORTS MOMENT: My best personal sports moment was my 1 tackle in high school in the 1989 OHSAA Division IV state championship game at Ohio Stadium on the old field turf. To play an actual game on the same turf Woody walked on will always be the greatest sports moment of my life. That and OSU's 2002 national championship game win over Miami. I cried tears of utter joy after that win.

We win that 2005 Texas game we likely play USC for the national title. We had it they just couldnt tackle Vince Young. The 2009 USC game was painful to watch just because we had that game and played well enough to win it. I cant watch the 2014 VT game. That VT QB converting all those 3rd downs just pissed me off. What angered me more is he stunk the rest of the season.

They're still not our rivals and their fans still support a school that was complicit in a horrible thing, far worse than any silly NCAA violation. I have never had nor will ever have any admiration or love for them. They could leave the B1G and I would yell "Don't let the door hit your tails on the way out." I may hate TTUN but I don't wish them to leave the B1G and don't wish their program to cease to exist like I do PSU. They deserved the death penalty.

I used to use the Airborne cold remedies (I prefer the drinkable kind) only when I felt a cold coming on (scratchy throat and bad headache) but now I take one once a week even when I feel ok and since then I (Knock on wood) I haven't had a cold in several months. I live in Florida and we get illnesses from all over the world because of all the tourists so my immune system has to be jacked up to live here lol.

You could probably draw a correlation between the number of Booms and Busts and the overall strength of the starting team. Even though we were so young last year if a few more of those Busts went Boom, namely Torrance Gibson and Brionte Dunn, maybe we go undefeated last year in the regular season and at the very least give Clemson a good game. It just comes to show how crucial good recruiting is and gives you an appreciation of how good Urban is at it as well. Hoping our 2016 and 2017 classes are up to the challenge.

Who could blame those refs for not wanting to come back? The abuse those guys take is far worse because most high schools don't give the officials any protection after a game. At the collegiate and pro level referees have police escorting them off the field most times. But at the high school level some drunken POS can come up to them and literally assault them because they threw a flag that called back their son's touchdown. I've seen people follow officials back to their cars after high school games. Same problem is happening for youth umpires for little league and football. I once watched some angry mom slap an umpire for a bad call after a 10-year old little league game. Officials aren't getting paid enough to deal with that BS.

The first Bond movie I ever remember watching was Dr. No and From Russia with Love but when Moore took over the role I still loved the movies. I think what I liked the most about him was that he didn't try to be Connery's Bond. He tried to be Roger Moore's Bond and he did a great job at it. RIP Sir Roger.
